    I am always on the look out for books for the kids. So when I stumbled upon Bookroo a book subscription box, I was simply in love with them. Now that 3 out of the 4 are able to read, when they come visit for the summer break. I try to have a good collection of books for them to have. There’s nothing more special, than a child that loves to read – if you ask me. Basically, Bookroo is a monthly book subscription box for children ages 0-2 who receive 3 board books and children 2-6 who receive 2 paper back book with pictures. But in all honestly all of my…

    When Jesus Was a Green-Eyed Brunette: Loving People Like God Does

    I love when you’re able to judge a book by it’s cover, when I first picked up When Jesus Was A Green-Eyed Brunette by Max Davis. The Christian life is not a matter of behaving like Christ, but of allowing Christ Himself to live in and through us. I am crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me.— Galatians 2:20 When Jesus Was a Green-Eyed Brunette weaves heartwarming and miraculous stories of Jesus showing up in ordinary people, revealing that He knows us and is fully present in our everyday circumstances, especially in our difficulties.

    Love Riot Tour 2016 ─ God’s Not Dead #LoveRiotTour

    One day I was searching through Premier Productions and I saw the Love Riot Tour was coming to North Carolina. Which means I was finally going to be able to see Newsboys in concert ─ if you’re a fan of Christian music, you know how big this moment is. I’ve been a fan of Micheal Tait since he was with DC Talk. I love me some Newsboys music! Then I found out that The Afters, Ryan Stevenson & Graham Saber were going to be there as well. Ryan Stevenson who sings, “Eye of the Storm” that song is one of the many that got me through 2016. There’s something about going to…

    Board Game Night Made Easy with ThinkFun

    When was the last time you had a board game night in your home? It’s been awhile hasn’t it. My friend and I try to have them every other week. Depending on when everyone is working, it normally falls on a Friday. A week or two we played these games; Balance Beans, Escape the Room: Mystery at the Stargazer’s Manor, Yoga Spinner & Clue Master from ThinkFun. I have to admit out of all the games – I’m not sure I could picked my favorite. They all cover different aspect in a game, to the point it makes it enjoyable for all ages. The kids loved the Yoga Spinner game. While it was entertaining as all…
